The First Clue?
HANOVER (CBS) – Investigators are trying to find out who is making and setting off homemade bombs near a section of Route 53.
Residents in that area have reported loud bangs and flashes of bright light.
On March 12, police found two unexploded bombs in a wooded area near Pine Street and Tower Hill Drive.
Captain Jim Gallagher says they want to get to the bottom of who is making them.
“They were simply small cardboard tubes, they are filled with what appears to be flash powder, they are sealed at the end with wax and they have a fuse inserted,” Gallagher told WBZ NewsRadio 1030. “We’re concerned they are able to get the components on the internet fairly readily and that’s what’s making it easy.”
Not a “Crock Pot Bomb,” but perhaps a means to test whether the explosives you’ve mixed will work. For what it’s worth, Hanover, Mass. is roughly halfway between Boston and Dartmouth, Mass., where the younger Tsarneav went to school
